Mahasivaratri Talk Part 2 Being Siva


Cybertalk: In Part 2 of his Mahasivaratri talk for 2002, Bodhinatha speaks more on both being Siva and being separate from Siva, the crux of monistic theism, our wonderful and ancient Saiva Siddhanta philosophy. Gurudeva gave us the concept of the soul body and the essence of the soul. Our soul body is maturing and is separate from God Siva's soul body. But in its essence as Parasiva--the Self--and Satchitananda--all-pervading energy and consciousness, our soul is identical to God Siva.

Become a spiritual being. That is your goal, your liberation, for as the years go by you can live in heaven, or you can live in your own self-created hell, and you don't want to do that. Think about it and create a heaven right now by living with Siva.
